Ormond Beach, FL – Two armed robbery suspects end up behind bars after a chase involving four different agencies ends in a crash.
Just after 11:30 last night (February 20th), officers with Ormond Beach Police Department responded to a 7-11 convenience store on North Nova Road by the Trails Shopping Center.
When officers arrived, they were told by the store clerk that two masked men, later identified as 29-year-old
Both Scott & Duffy demanded cash, before running out of the store headed northbound.
One Publix employee contacted OBPD, telling them they saw Scott & Duffy head northbound on Nova Road in a white Ford Escape.
Not long after getting an ID of their vehicle, a detective with Ormond Beach police found them driving northbound on US-1. The detective, assisted by a Volusia County deputy, tried to stop the vehicle. That’s when Scott & Duffy took off.
The chase took the suspects and law enforcement north on US-1, up to the Flagler County line. At that point, Volusia County Sheriff’s Office contacted the Flagler County Sheriff’s Office, asking for help in the chase.
FCSO joined the chase which continued into the city of Bunnell where Bunnell police and FCSO had set up stop sticks in efforts to stop Scott & Duffy. After hitting the stop sticks, the vehicle crashed into a wooded area just west of Highway 100.
Scott & Duffy jumped from the vehicle and ran into the woods, with a VCSO K-9 deputy following close behind.
